Hi everyone !

I have a hard time finding my style. I went to see a style advisor who made me try on some outfits. I'm quite drawn to anything that has military influence. But I'm not sure it could be nice on me.
I want to look better than now, for online dating photo and in general. What do you think of this ? Would you have any advice please ?

The last photo is what I look like everyday. I feel like I look like a nice teddy bear.

The other photos are outfits I test last friday.

The sweater ones won't work on you until you get leaner. The first two are not bad. Quite elegant. Definetely not edgy tho.

Dude you need to dial in the fit

Not the worst choices(cept the sweaters) but literally everything looks the wrong size

To be honest there is literally no point in buying these clothes right now, unless you are gonna stay this size. Which you cannot if you are serious on dating.

Thank you very much for your opinion. The sizes are not adjusted. The advisor did not pay too much attention to the size. The goal was to see the style. But that said, I thought the size was right (except pants length). Do you think the size is too big?

I'm not going to buy clothes now, I still have a lot of fat to lose indeed. But I'm looking for a style now in order to no wasting time thinking when I will be lean.

So lesson number one, avoid big sweaters.

The main problem is it can be hard to judge style accurately and fairly if nothing fits you in a flattering way. The "best styles" when you're carrying a lot of fat tend to be the ones that make it look like you're not carrying as much fat. The style that helped you by hiding a flaw likely won't be the best style once you don't have to hide it anymore.

My guess is until you drop some weight you'll want to use lots of layers with open jackets, like in the first two pictures. After that you'll have more freedom to pick styles that bring out a sharp edge and accentuate your personality.

Start losing weight today. I started quite a bit fatter than you and while I'm honestly still feeling like a "before" picture in my current state, it's night and day in clothes. Not having to hide your stomach, being able to wear things that fit you snugly, it's unreal for your confidence. Your approach to it won't be optimal right away, but it doesn't need to be.

Might be an idea to start looking around Instagram, Pinterest etc for style ideas and try emulate them. When you say military style what do you mean (tac jacket, combat, boots)?

Also have a quick skim of this as food for thought - https://whiteknightrises.com/mens-style ... at_to_Wear
Current #1 Goal - Complete up to & including day 55 of AA Program (Currently on day 6)

Current #2 Goal - Bulk up to 75kg (165lbs)

Thank for the advices.

@nipple-flip I already lost 10kg (22lbs) since july and I can see the difference. In fact, all my clothes are now too large. I think I will wait even longer before buying new clothes. We will soon have a covid lock down soon, so no need of perfect clothes now. I am very motivated to continue losing fat during that lock down to have a better me at the end.

@TimmyTurner Nice guide, thanks !
